Four years ago I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease, an auto-immune disease that means my body essentially attacks itself every time I eat gluten. (For more information I would recommend the NHS website) Gluten can be found in many things; bread, pasta and cakes being the most obvious. Or so you would think. At the Taybank I ordered one of...

I stopped in Dunkeld for the weekend on my way back from the Highlands and was told to visit the taybank for the traditional Scottish session on a Thursday night.

Nice old-school pub with friendly staff and a good beer selection. Food was good too. Dog friendly. Rest of building is undergoing renovation but the bar is nice and there is extensive beer garden space outside.

We have been coming to Dunkeld 2/3 times a year for the last 10 years or so. The Taybank was always the place to go as it was always open, had a great atmosphere and very friendly staff. You could always forgive the shabby interior as it added to the character. Good progress has been made on the outside area... More

Lovely outside garden area but a pity about the lack of service or enthusuasm ibdoors shame as there could be so much potential there. No food being served at the moment either. What happened to the friendly place it was at one time.
